We’re still waiting to hear when exactly Apex Legends is landing on Switch, but a new wireless controller based on the game is arriving very soon. In fact, it’s popped up on Amazon with a February 3 release date – that would be tomorrow.

Here’s the official product description for the controller, which is made by PowerA:

Play your favorite Nintendo Switch games like a pro with this officially licensed PowerA Enhanced Wireless Controller. Built for comfort during extended gaming sessions, this Bluetooth wireless controller features motion controls, mappable Advanced Gaming Buttons, and standard ergonomic layout. Enjoy up to 30 hours of gameplay with new alkaline batteries or add your own rechargeable batteries.

Advanced Gaming Buttons
Gain a competitive advantage by keeping your thumbs on the analog sticks and mapping actions to two buttons on the back of the controller. There is no app or system settings to configure. Simply hold the program button for two seconds (1) followed by the button you wish to map (2), then select either AGR or AGL (3) to complete the process for quick on-the-fly button mapping.
